Sunni from A Fashionable Stitch shows how to alter a darted bodice pattern into one with an armscye princess seam.  A princess seam is actually very similar to a pair of darts, but it provides smoother contours.  It’s also faster and easier to sew than a pair of darts, since it’s just one continuous seam.  Get the tutorial to see how it’s done.
